Stress is our friend.
Too much stress and it becomes our enemy – out to destroy all we hold dear.

Too much tension, the strings snap.
Too little, and there is no beautiful music to make or enjoy.

Take 14 minutes sometime this week and listen to Kelly McGonigal’s TED Talk on stress. Have a pen handy. You won’t be disappointed.
